Today, Wednesday the 20th of March, we have had the pleasure of meeting and enjoying David Ebsworth talk, which was given to our 2nd ‘Bachillerato’ students. He told us about his last book, Until the Curtain Falls, which is about the Spanish Civil War: ‘October 1938, and a British foreign correspondent is on the run in northern Spain, hunted by three different and deadly enemies determined to kill him before he can reach the Mediterranean coast and freedom ‘
David Ebsworth is the pen name of writer, Dave McCall, a former negotiator and Regional Secretary for Britain’s Transport & General Workers’ Union – which gave him a passion for people and political history that features so strongly in his novels. He was born in Liverpool (UK) in 1949, growing up there in the ‘Sixties, but has lived, since 1981, in Wrexham (North Wales) with his wife, Ann – who also happens to be his “ideal reader” and main mentor.
He began to write seriously in 2009 and maintains a strict daily writing and marketing routine – though he still manages to find time for a regular morning swim, as well as for sailing. You can find him writing, most mornings, in Wrexham’s Caffè Nero, or Guardamar del Segura’s Pastelería Monge.
We would like to thank David for giving us the opportunity to know a little bit more about our history through his novel.
